In Fortnite Festival, you will notice some white arrow notes (triangles) on the screen whenever you release a button.

What Are The Triangles in Fortnite Festival?

Music Notes

The most common type of triangle is actually a music note. These notes appear along the musical track in the game and represent the timing points where you need to press your assigned button to hit the note.

The size and color of the triangles can vary depending on the difficulty of the note. Larger triangles are typically easier to hit, while smaller triangles require more precision. Hitting the notes accurately earns you points and contributes to your overall score and performance.

Special Notes

Occasionally, you'll encounter triangles with a glow or specific symbol. These are special notes that offer additional benefits when hit:

Gold Notes: These reward you with bonus points and increase your score multiplier.

Overdrive Notes: These activate your band's Overdrive meter, allowing you to earn even more points and perform special actions like enhanced instrument sounds.

Challenge Notes: These require specific button combinations or actions to hit successfully, granting you even higher rewards.
